"A Gay Or Lesbian 'May Be Burned Alive, Pushed From A High Wall, Or Beaten Publicly With Stones...'"
As Examiner.com recently covered, the wild and woolly world of Islamic fatwas (religious rulings) recently deemed any Muslim in India wearing a certain political party's cap that has the image of a broom on it will burn in hell forever and ever, amen. Not to be outdone, two more fatwas from South Asia are now on the books, but the twist here - they both have physical sexual contact at the heart of the theological edicts. As reported by the right-of-center news portal RightSideNews.com on Jan. 21, 2014, Mufti Mohammad Afzaal Rizwi of the Barelvi School of Sunni Islam located on the southern slopes of the Himalayan city of Bareilly decreed that Indian gays and lesbians and also heterosexuals who co-habitate before marriage should be executed in a number of grisly fashions.
As noted, Mufti Rizwi cited two hadiths (teachings of the Prophet Mohammed) as the basis for his fatwa. As per Hadith Dur-re-Mukhtar, the gay or lesbian sexual act as well as heterosexuals living outside of wedlock are punishable by the offender(s) "may be burned alive, pushed from a high wall, or beaten publicly with stones if he indulges into either of the two behaviors."
Meanwhile in the Islamic Republic of Birthin' Babies...
In an apparent move to increase the nation's population, the Iranian head-honcho himself has issued a ruling that has made Iran one of the leading centers of artificial insemination on the planet, as reported by Iranian.com on Jan. 21, 2014. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei provided religious sanctions for sperm and egg donations, possibly due to Iran's abnormally high infertility rate.
The Yolk's on You...
With the global rate of infertility varying between 8 and 12 percent, Iranian non-swimming sperm and/or busted eggs inexplicably top out at a whopping 20 percent of the populace. No reason for the unnaturally high infertility rate was cited.
